The 1930s and 40s saw an intellectual high point in Mormon history with B. H. Roberts, James E. Talmage, and John Widtsoe. Brigham Young University flourished, but intellectual freedom and academic freedom have conflicted with evolution, “faithful history”, and building the kingdom, resulting in dissent and excommunications. Today, a thriving print culture perpetuates both sides of the tradition.
